Congratulations to recent graduates James Robson and Kristin Wregglesworth on their research papers, published this week:

– Robson JF and Barker D (2015) Comparison of the protein-coding gene content of Chlamydia trachomatis and Protochlamydia amoebophila using a Raspberry Pi computer. BMC Research Notes, 8, 561.

– Wreggelsworth KM and Barker D (2015) A comparison of the protein-coding genomes of two green sulphur bacteria, Chlorobium tepidum TLS and Pelodictyon phaeoclathratiforme BU-1. BMC Research Notes, 8, 565.

In both cases the work was originally carried out as coursework for module BL4273 Bioinformatics for Biologists, at the University of St Andrews last year.

BL4273 uses the low-cost Raspberry Pi computer and our 4273pi operating system, customized for bioinformatics teaching and learning. To download 4273pi or find out more, see:
